Five stars for The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
In the second book of the Wheel of Time series, the Horn of Valere is stolen by Fain, along with Mat's dagger, and a hunt is begun. Of course, not only Mat, but Rand and Perrin, even Loial join the hunt. Meanwhile, Egwene, Nynaeve, Elayne and Min are lured away from Tar Valon and have their own adventure, ending up enslaved in Falme. Tensions run high throughout the novel. We see more about each of the character's abilities and personalities. Terrific read.
